BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Fluoroquinolone has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity, and is widely used for gonorrhoea treatment. However, its efficacy can be compromised by the drug-resistance property of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates. Most resistant cases of N. gonorrhoeae are associated with mutations in the quinolone-resistance-determining-region(More)
PURPOSE Hoxd-13, as one of the most posterior genes among Hox genes, was reported to play a critical role in the development of the most posterior alimentary canal in vertebrates. This study investigated the expression pattern of Hoxd-13 in the hindgut development of the normal and ethylenethiourea (ETU)-exposed rat embryos with anorectal malformations(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cervical corpectomy with preserved posterior vertebral wall (CPW) had been performed by the senior author (Y.W.) since 1999. A prospective study had been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of CPW since 2001. OBJECTIVE To validate the clinical outcome of CPW against conventional corpectomy (CC). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Anterior surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) is frequently associated with intractable focal epilepsy. Epileptogenicity is usually attributed to the hemosiderin deposits. Extent of resection is a crucial issue for achieving good seizure outcome. AIM To assess whether seizure outcome is related to the extended resection (ER) of surrounding hemosiderin(More)
Polymer-stabilized double emulsions are produced by a two-step process, high shear emulsification in the primary and membrane emulsification in the secondary. By repeated fractionation after each emulsification, we obtain monodisperse double emulsions with the size of the complex droplets ranging from submicrometer to a few micrometers. With osmotic(More)
As an active topic in pattern recognition, the graph spectral is applied in clustering and segmentation. But issues in the analysis to image, especially the texture image, could not been retrieved till now. In this paper, we present a novel texture analysis method, which introduces graph spectral theory into the field of texture image analysis. At first,(More)
This paper focuses on support vector machines (SVMs) with radial basis function (RBF) kernels to solve the large-scale classification problems. We decompose a large-scale learning problem into multiple two-class problems with the one-verse-all decomposition technique, and then propose an adoptively clustering method. An initial support vector (SV) coincides(More)
A service-oriented architecture (SOA) will allow organizations to enhance interoperability and encourage reuse of components and interfaces. Describing SOA is critical in the development of Web-based system. In this paper, an approach for describing SOA is proposed by comparing with several existing ADL. The requirements for describing SOA are highlighted(More)
